Harold E. Buttram – A member of the Association of American Physicians and Scientists (AAPS), which is an organization well-versed in global warming and HIV/AIDs denialism, who pioneered Shaken Baby Syndrome, a condition caused by physical trauma and is well-associated with child abuse, on vaccines.
Shiv Chopra – A Canadian microbiologist who was a former employee of Health Canada’s drug and safety board and was involved in a whistleblowing incident which involved him being pressured to approve animal drugs. After that bit died down, he shifted towards anti-vaccination and anti-GMO “activism”. He thinks swine flu, bird flu, and the 1918 flu epidemic are hoaxes. For instance, he doesn’t think the 1918 flu outbreak happened because he never heard of it and blames the deaths attributed to the epidemic on people overdosing on aspirin. In other words, he thinks millions of people died from internal bleeding from aspirin overdose rather than communicable diseases. I guess it should also be worth mentioning that he is not an expert in immunization and does not conduct scientific research in said subject matter.
Mark Donohoe – An Australian physician who describes himself as into integrative medicine (see Note 4) and complementary medicine (which isn’t real medicine). He advises parents on vaccines, yet doesn’t provide vaccines at his clinic, despite his protestations that he is not “anti-vaccine.” He also buys into the Wind Farm Syndrome, a thoroughly debunked psychosomatic disorder of people who live near large wind turbines. It was determined that the Australian oil industry was being the astroturfing of this nocebo.
Mayer Eisenstein – A doctor who was first to thought of administering Lupron, a chemical castration drug, to children as an autism “treatment. He was also involved in one of the largest U.S. wrongful death lawsuits awarded ($30 million) to a family in history. Despite his track record and due to his belief in the autism/vaccine myth, he noted, “every doctor now essentially in this country has done something as heinous as the Nazis did, unknowingly.”
Frank Engley – A retired microbiologist and a proponent of chelation therapy. He claims that thimerosal is dangerous at any concentration. That would be amazing considering there is a concentration in which even cyanide is not dangerous. He also used the material safety data sheet (MSDS), which refers to industrial quantities, to highlight the dangers of thimerosal in vaccines.
